We took off before the election results were declared however our pilot was good enough to keep us updated. He gave us the electoral count right after takeoff and about 30mins later when the results were declared. Nothing quite like staying connected.
Sitting at Heathrow Airport right now, it’s quite amazing to see the actual electoral spread. Obama didn’t just win, he really really WON!! The results were much better than anyone could possibly have imagined.
All the newspapers and TV channels (European ones too) only seem to be covering one news item: Obama! This immense interest in the politics of the US is a testament to the current strength of US and to globalization. The world is ready for change, not just America 🙂
